Tyson Fury may be known to most as the long-reigning heavyweight champion, but to his children he is simply known as Dad.
The British professional boxer and his family are the subject of a new Netflix reality TV show titled At Home with the Furys which aired on August 16, 2023.
It follows Fury as he navigates family life, mental health issues, retirement from boxing and his day-to-day family life with his wife Paris Fury.
Although there are many shocking moments, if one thing has surprised the viewer the most, it is the children’s names. One of them, he claimed, came to him while he was sleeping.
So who are Tyson Fury’s children and what are their unusual names? Find out below
What is the name of Tyson Fury’s child?

Fury’s eldest daughter, Venezuela, is 13 and was born on September 27, 2009. The teenager told the show that she gets on with her father “quite well”, although she thinks he is “very strict”.
She revealed that Fury was recently upset with her when she wore a mini dress, explaining: “He just doesn’t like me wearing make-up and looking pretty.”
Adds: ‘Strict parents raise sneaky children.’
His youngest daughter, Athena, got off to a rough start when she was born in the intensive care unit on August 8, 2021.
Keeping with the geographic theme, the two share another daughter named Valencia, age five.
Speaking about the decision behind his daughter’s name, he told The Guardian in 2011 that he made them up.
He said: ‘One night, while I was sleeping, I thought about Venezuela. My wife’s name is Paris. I’m Tyson and [gesturing to his son] his name is Prince John James.
“If the girl had a normal name, it wouldn’t fit in, would it? I wanted to call the boy Patrick, but the wife didn’t want it.’
Why are three of his children named Prince?
What perhaps came as the biggest surprise to viewers is that all three of his sons are named Prince.
The theme began in 2011, when Prince John James was born, and added another in 2016, Prince Tyson II, and the last, Adonis Amaziah, in 2019.
Fury elaborated in his 2020 documentary: “I am a king and they are princes until they are given their rightful name.”
On March 23, 2023, Tyson and Paris announced that they were expecting their seventh child together.
He shared a photo to his Instagram story, captioning it: ‘Going on date night with my beautiful pregnant wife @ParisFury1. God is great!’
Molly Mae, the Love Island star and Tyson’s sister-in-law married to Tommy Fury, commented at the time: ‘What a blessing. So happy for you both’.
